The students are putting together a brilliantly colorful, fun and educational show about South America —  its geography and culture, its people, their customs and their foods, its politics... as well as the animals to be found in the countries of that region.

The project involves music & dance, readings, presentations and demonstrations, as well as samples of typical foods.

The annual Third Grade Living Wax Museum, March 2017

We would like invite everyone to an online visit of the "Third Grade Living Wax Museum!"

The exhibit took place at the Theater at ACS Athens' Atrium and Lobby on February 24th, and many Elementary School classes as well as faculty, parents came to visit and interact with the "exhibits."

According to Ms. Stavi Dimas, 3rd grade teacher and an organizer of the event:

The third grade students choose a historical figure who has made a positive difference in his/her community.  The students independently research their chosen figure for three weeks, write an informative essay, and finally create a speech.  Through this project they have the opportunity to exercise their presentation skills, critical thinking, and creativity.

Join us for the gallery tour of the Living Wax Museum project, here...
